Film Tape

Postby Simon_P » Thu 08.11.2018, 13:39

A100B1209F etc. Film tape to prevent paint cracking at joints.

Does anyone have any idea for a suitable product, I've phoned every paint consumables factor and tape manufacturer I can think of drawn several blanks.

Over here, they seem to use the anti-chip tape/sheet that some put on the rocker panels and such. I'm pretty sure that is what they used in my door area after I replaced the rear quarter panel.

There was also a suggestion for using "helicopter tape" for the small section of black on the rear bumper near the license plate area. They make that in clear as well. It is normally used to minimize damage to the rotors from debris in the air while the blades are rotating.

Hi John, this is the tape that is sprayed over. The tape is to stop the paint cracking on the joint.
See picture.

Can you spray over anti chip film?

What picture?

They painted over the tape on my car and it hasn't peeled or cracked.

The picture that it is time consuming to resize so that the website will actually upload it ... ie this one after 10 minutes and 3 attempts.

You must learn patience, grasshopper... There are several photo editors that make it easier. I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager that came with the bundle. IT is painless.

That is the same area I had to replace too. The local paint supplier knew what I was asking for and sold me a sheet of it. I am pretty sure they called it anti-chip sheet but the guys at Hendricks Racing (NASACAR) did the first round of paint that ended up horrible, but the tape stayed just fine. I see other places call it Helicopter Tape. I am assuming they used the sheet I supplied...

Here is a place in the UK. Maybe you can call them and ask?
